Michin Dak is a strip-mall fried chicken shack (it’s literally a freestanding shed in the parking lot) with a no-frills menu to match: there are wings, tenders, gang jung (Korean-style popcorn chicken), and a chicken burger. You order at an iPad and choose your spice level, which ranges from original to “blood sweat and tears” spicy. The burger at “hot”-level spice is great - you’ll be blowing your nose between bites, but you’ll still want to keep eating.
